Oh man. I had a guy from High School message me on facebook asking if I wanted him to come to my wedding. Weird.

I think a witty response like that could work depending on the kind of guy he is. Or, more bluntly, “i’m sorry it’s a small wedding. Thanks for your interest” or something to that effect. I unno, I think telling him it doesn’t work like that is pretty obvious =]

This guy has some gall man!

lol that is the best +1 story.

This guy is insane… are you inviting other people from work? Obviously he just wants to be included. Hmm has he met your FI? I have no idea how I would approach this! I’m racking my brain & I can’t come up with anything that is the slightest bit helpful! I’m sorry…

That’s SO random.

While I like your postcard idea, I don’t think you should do that – because I don’t think he’d get the message.

I’d actually call him and tell him you received his postcard about the wedding.  Then tell him that you are sorry if he thought he was invited to the wedding, but you are having a private wedding with only close friends and family.

Be as straightforward and direct as possible.  And, don’t worry about sounding ‘mean’.  Just try to be gracious and kind in your delivery – and all should be fine with any future interaction you may have to have with him.

YEOWSER.

I can’t fathom this.  “Hi, I didn’t get an invite, but I’m coming to your wedding anyway.  I’ll take the beef”.

WHUT?

LOL.

That’s totally nuts. I would do an email, and avoid and AKWARD phone call. Just say “I recieved your postcard. We’re sorry for any confusion but unfortunately we are having a very small, invitation only wedding. We just can’t accomodate anyone else, but we’d love to celebrate with you some other time.” Then, obviously, just blow off the “private celebration.”

Oh, that is so strange – does he even know when and where it is? Did he ask on his postcard? This is taking “am I invited” to a whole new level.

I agree straight forward phone call that the Fiance makes that will get the point across!

Gosh, and I was worried about a friend’s odd boyfriend that’s she’ll probably +1. This takes the cake!

Can you call or email him expalining that you’re keeping your wedding small, family only?
